Cosy Slow Cooker Split Pea Stew

This stew is more than just a comforting meal; it’s a beacon of health during these colder days.

Using a slow cooker means you can enjoy the rich, homely flavours without spending hours in the kitchen.


1 Yellow Onion (medium, diced)
2 Garlic (cloves, minced)
2 Carrot (medium, diced)
2 stalks Celery (diced)
1 tbsp Dried Thyme
2 cups Yellow Split Peas (dry/uncooked)
8 cups Vegetable Broth
4 cups Kale Leaves (chopped)
Sea Salt & Black Pepper (to taste)


  1. In your slow cooker, add the onion, garlic, carrots, celery, thyme and dried split peas. Pour the broth over all ingredients and cook on low for 8 hours. Stir every few hours to prevent the split peas from sticking to the bottom.
  2. In the last 30 minutes of cooking, add chopped kale. Once the kale is wilted, season to taste with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
